March 7,1964- March 7, 2012:

"The sensational blind date..."
The "Under My Roof" memoir began on Saturday, March 7, 1964. This is the story of a 21 year old nursing student "falling in love." At that time there were no records on sexual abuse. It was not dealt with in the 60's. 

Today is Wednesday, March 7, 2012 and we know that one in three girls are molested before the age of 18 and at least one in 6 boys.

This story breaks the silence of a household as told by the mother. We read and hear about sexual abuse daily on television...and it's a common crime in programs.

When you purchase this book in either softcover or as an e-book, the proceeds support programs for survivors and mothers of survivors.

"The ultimate therapy is to identify our own pain with the pain of others, and then band together to resist the conditions that create our common malady."
